A new study finds that the majority of parents are still using their phones on the road.
One group in particular facing the most risk: millennials.
Researchers from Harvard’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital conducted the survey.
Nearly 2/3 of all parents admitted to reading texts while driving and over half said they sent text messages, too.
Although the majority of adults involved in the study indicated that they drove distractedly, millennial parents were most likely to be distracted by risky activities beyond texting.
Those activities include responding to emails and using maps.
Additionally, about 16% of millennial parents had been in at least one crash in the year prior to taking the survey compared to 10% of older parents.
